    Default 2000 silverado 4x4 transmission problem?

    My 2000 silverado 1500 4x4 with 5.3 has a wierd problem that I think is transmission related. When I go from park or reverse to drive most of the time there is a noticeable lag like the tranny is being lazy going into drive. If i give it more gas it sometimes will bang into gear hard so i just easily feather it. Once it goes in drive it is fine and i can drive all over with no problems. It does this most but not every single time. Could the gear selector on the trans be acting up or do I need a rebuild? The truck does have 216,000 miles. thanks

    Well when was the last time the tranny was serviced? if its been a while i would start there. then get it scanned for codes at your local tranny shop...

    I just bought this truck last week with known problem. No trouble codes and fluid looks good, just figured it might be an easy fix. May try changing the filter and fluid.

    Changed fluid and filter still does same thing.

    Now not trying to be a jerk here but who checked for trouble codes?? since a tranny code cannot be read with most handheld scanners, and will not always illuminate the CEL... Also there are a few threads on here that talk about the valve body as well as line pressure etc..

    I used my mechanic friends snap-on analyzer and there were no trouble or history codes. Sometimes the tranny is fine and sometimes it acts up. Was wondering what the valve body and line pressure problems were and there symptoms?
